The Roommate

 So the next big news in our household is we have a new roommate!  Yes, KJ moved back home.  Or, I guess I should say, she moved to California.  She's been pursuing her Master's degree on line, decided it was time to get out of Oxford and actually found a teaching job that meets her naturalist lifestyle in Southern California.  She's had a couple of weeks of training outside of Malibu and on Catalina Island and has held classes in Yosemite and the Angeles National Forest.  She's loving life.  She's made friends, she's hiking almost every day, snorkeling at night off Catalina in the bioluminescence, camping, and having fun with the kids.

The Big Day !!!

I didn't realize exactly how long it's been since I've actually posted.  In my head it feels like yesterday but I guess a lot has happened since Easter!

First and foremost, we gained a son-in-law!  The wedding literally went off without a hitch.  The  rehearsal dinner was wonderful, the weather the day of the wedding was perfect, the band was fantastic, the food was great, the flowers were gorgeous, the bar cart was adorable, the lawn games were fun, the after party was a hit and the crawfish boil the next day was a nice surprise and all of our out town guests had safe travels.  I don't think we could have asked for more. T kept saying, "this was the wedding of our dreams."  So if she was happy, we were happy!
